After the suicide of her friend and employer, who has been teaching her to be a detective, Cordelia Gray (Pippa Guard) takes over his business and begins an investigation of the apparent suicide of the son of a businessman. When the suicide turns out to be murder, what she discovers disrupts the entire family and puts Cordelia's life in danger. This off-beat British film is a moody, entertaining thriller, much in the tradition of film noir, but with an unusual and determined female detective. Nicely directed by Christopher Petit, and based on the wonderful novel of the same name by the acclaimed British mystery writer P. J. James, this film gives a fresh approach to the detective-film genre and introduces an intelligent and resourceful woman to a profession usually dominated by men.

The directing, top notch. Ben Affleck has really proven that he knows what he is doing behind the camera. Only three directing credits to his name and they have all been great hits. What I like about his films is that the characters seem very real and believable. Casey Affleck gives a great performance along with Ed Harris, Amy Ryan, Michelle Monaghan and others. All seem like real people and not just characters that were written for a story. As for the story, nothing is extremely new or groundbreaking, it's just a well-told, intriguing, "solid" story. If you are looking for a crime mystery story that is easy to follow and well made, then Gone Baby Gone is a great choice!
